Lawyers for president Buhari’s daughter, Hanan, have refused to respond to allegations levelled against her by a trader, Anthony Okolie, who was detained for 10 weeks for using a telephone line previously used by Hanan.
At a court hearing on Wednesday, her lawyer, M.E. Sheriff, bluntly told the court and the presiding judge that they had no response to the allegations because there was no need for a response.
This enraged the presiding judge, Justice Dimgba.
“What do you mean you haven’t seen a reason? Sheriff, how can you not see a reason? Somebody has accused you. Even if it is to say, ‘I didn’t do so’, can’t you respond? You’re saying you did not see a reason. Sheriff, what kind of things is this?” She asked
The attorneys for the DSS had no response either as they claimed they were issued the suit late.
The judge adjourned the case till March 2nd.
